Mulch your Christmas tree at the garden


Bringing your Christmas tree to the garden will guarantee it’s continued use in the form of mulch which will be used in the garden and around the neighbourhood. Don’t let your tree end up in the trash!

TreeCycle/Mulch Fest 2014 is part of an annual, city wide program organised by New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, the New York City Department of Sanitation, and GreeNYC to recycle your Christmas trees into wood chips. For more info on the program, go to the MulchFest site.

Prospect Heights Community Farm will be one of the many places to drop of your Christmas tree throughout the city. We’ll be collecting trees and chipping them into mulch on Saturday and Sunday the 11th and 12th of January from 10 am to 2 pm. That gives you a few days from twelfth night on the 6th of January to lug your tree over to the garden.

Make sure any non-compostable decorations have been removed from your tree and bring it to the garden at one of the following times:

Saturday the 11th of January, 10 am – 2 pm.
Sunday the 12th of January, 10 am – 2 pm.

Last year’s event was a great success and we mulched over 400 trees! Here are some photos from last year:
